  1. How To Integrate SP3 Into MS Office 2007 Here is a quick guide on how to Integrate or Slipstream MS Office SP3 2007 into the installation CD/DVD. Right now 'Create A New Folder' to anywhere of your choice, I named mine 'Office 2007'; Now I created my new folder on my G:\ Drive Ok to be able to Integrate or Slipstream MS Office SP3 2007 into the installation CD/DVD first thing you will need to do is Download the "office2007sp3-kb2526086-fullfile-en-us.exe" file. Click on the link here to Download MS Office 2007 SP3 - http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=27838 (Now Download this to the same location as your as your new folder you just created.) As in the image above. (Ignore the MS Office 2007 Enterprise SP3 as this was my test run) Ok now you will need to 'Copy the Contents of your MS Office 2007 CD/DVD' to the new folder "Office2007" Ok now all you will need to do is open Command Prompt as Admin and Enter the following command > G:\office2007sp3-kb2526086-fullfile-en-us.exe /extract:G:\Office2007\Updates\ Remember, where I have G:\ your's maybe different, so Replace G with whatever drive letter you used. Once you have Entered the Command, Press Enter......... You will see a new Window pop up 'Microsoft Software License Terms' for 2007 Microsoft Office Suite Service Pack 3 (SP3) Here you just need to accept and Click on Continue to proceed...... Now the files are being extracted from the SP3 file you downloaded and placed into the updates folder of the Microsoft Office Installation Files you copied from your CD/DVD The reason we have had to Integrate or Slipstream the SP3 file this way is because the update needs to be in the .msp file format to be able to install from the updates folder from your Microsoft Office 2007 Installation CD/DVD Ok in a matter of seconds, it is all done! Click ok...... Now burn your new Microsoft Office 2007 SP3 Installation back to a CD/DVD. Tried and tested on MS Office 2007 Enterprise and Professional.

  4. (You must only use this feature if you are 100% sure you will not need the old system restore points, because once they have been deleted... they are gone for good!) ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ System Restore automatically creates restore points by making shadow copies of Windows, these copies can take up memory and build up quickly as you use your computer. By cleaning up System Restore points by Deleting all but the last restore point will free up memory and maybe slightly improve windows performance. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ To remove all but the last system restore point follow these simple steps... Click the Start Button and type CleanMgr and Press Enter; Choose your Default Hard Drive (normally Drive C) and click ok; The clean Manager will now Search through your system for files to delete; When Clean Manager is done Calculating, click on clean up my system files; And again select your drive; It is now calculating the system files to delete; Now click The Clean Up Tab under "System Restore and Shadow Copies", to remove all but the most recent restore point; Hope you found this useful!

  10. Here is a simple guide on how to perform CHKDSK in Windows 7/Vista _____________________________________________________________________________________________ Chkdsk analyzes the physical structure of a disk to make sure that it is healthy and It can repair problems related to bad sectors, lost clusters, and directory errors. These types of problems can be caused in many different ways ie. System crashes or freezes, power glitches, incorrectly turning off a computer can also cause corruption in the system files etc.. Physically bumping or knocking a computer can cause the head that reads disks to hit the surface and damage sectors. Once some sort of error occurs it can end up creating more errors so a regularly scheduled disk check is part of good system maintenance. Chkdsk can also serve as an early warning that a hard drive is deteriorating, disks will gradually wear out and sectors may become bad. __________________________________________________________________________________________________ Go to Computer in the start menu, Right click on the drive you want to scan and select Properties, Then click on Tools tab > Click on Check Now under the error checking section, Ok, here you will have a couple of options within the CHKDSK tool. It's recommended you leave the automatically fix file system errors checked,This option will attempt to repair any problems found. To perform a deeper scan, Check > scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors. This option will take a bit longer, When you have made your selection just hit the Start Button, If you are attempting to scan a Drive that is in use you will be faced with the image below, so just click on schedule disk check and the next time you reboot your computer it will run the CHKDSK scan. To perform This CHKDSK scan VIA command prompt; CHKDSK x: /F /R where X is your drive letter. Hope you found this useful!
